California begs dieters to eat fruit

Filed under: Business — Tags: — @ May 26, 2004

The California Tree Fruit Agreement, a group representing growers of peaches, plums and nectarines in California, is trying to convince dieters to give another look at fleshy fruits.

bq. “… fresh summer fruits are most certainly considered nutrient-rich foods. There are many things inside fresh fruits and vegetables that make them highly beneficial. They provide an array of vitamins, potassium and dietary fiber in addition to important phytonutrients that are thought to protect against cancer, heart disease and other diseases associated with aging.”

The group set up a website to further its goal: www.eatcaliforniafruit.com. A recipe section is included.
